Recording star Kid Rock, an outspoken supporter of Republican President Donald Trump, hinted in website and social media messages on Wednesday that he intends to run for the US Senate in 2018.
The 46-year-old Michigan native drew attention on Twitter and his Facebook page to a "Kid Rock '18 for U.S. Senate" website, featuring a photo of the goateed singer-songwriter seated in a star-spangled chair in dark glasses and white fedora, above the tagline: "Are you scared?"
The site also displays images of a T-shirt, baseball cap and bumper sticker emblazoned with the campaign logo, "Kid Rock for US Senate" and a box of alternating slogans, including, "In Rock We Trust," "Party to the People" and "You Never Met a Politician Quite Like Me."
"I have a ton of emails and texts asking me if this website is real ... The answer is an absolute YES," he said on his verified Twitter account. "Stay tuned, I will have a major announcement in the near future."
